People should be safe from harm from unsafe or unsuitable equipment (outcome 11)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are not at risk of harm from unsafe or unsuitable equipment (medical and non-medical equipment, furnishings or fittings).
  • Benefit from equipment that is comfortable and meets their needs.

How this check was done

Our judgement

Staff are trained to use equipment safely ensuring people’s comfort and protection.

User experience

We did not speak with the people using the service about the safety, availability and suitability of equipment.

Other evidence

All staff working at the home have received manual handling training. Records and conversations supported this. The home currently uses one piece of equipment within the home and this has only recently been purchased.

The equipment was purchased after it was identified as being necessary by a health care professional. Staff told us that they know when the equipment should be used and a senior staff member said that she had received training in relation to using the equipment safely and she is passing this information on to all staff before it is used. Plans will also be updated.
